Artly Coffee’s Robot Barista 

Artly Coffee's Barista Bot emulates the manner in which a human barista at your favorite coffee shop prepares your regular order.  

Alec Roig, a hardware developer at the Seattle-based tech startup, emphasized that the aim is to uphold the artistry of specialty coffee. The company has expanded to 10 Pacific Northwest and New York City locations. The in-house barista, responsible for all Artly's coffee recipes, was connected to motion sensors that captured his actions while preparing each recipe, from packing the coffee grounds into a filter to pouring milk and creating intricate Latte Art.  

The resident barista's movements were meticulously recorded using motion-capture technology, enabling the robots to replicate the exact actions through proprietary imitation learning, computer vision, and robotic control. This approach ensures that the robot baristas mirror the precision and passion of championship-winning human baristas, using the same industry-leading craft coffee equipment and tools in specialty coffee shops.  


CES 2024 showcased one of the latest technological advancements in the food and beverage industry, involving the emergence of AI-driven kitchen appliances and robots designed to prepare and mix drinks autonomously. These innovations hold the potential to transform the process of meal preparation, cooking, and serving.
